Default OK so Desert Storm was a little messed up for us.

Chris Reindl went through hell getting his Batboat to me from Cinncinati to run on Sat arriving at 3:30 am Sat morning where I tookover and prepped until 6 am before I launched it, then my throttle guy couldn't get there in time even though JD put us in the last sortie "J" Chris stepped up and throttled for the run and I am so glad he did. We were 2nd to our first stop which was actually stop #2 and then the 25 miles to card stop 2 which was actually #1 we were first there nobody could hang through the washing machine water with us from Thompson Bay to Devils Elbow so we picked up alot of time there. So Sat night we were so beat we just blew off the dinner cuz I new it would be a zoo and went to Shugrues for a steak then off to bed. I'll have it together better next year so I can hang with you guys more. Brandon where were you? Gary better luck next year, was that a KPM strainer??? Badkachina it was me flipping you off from the canopy in the batboat hahahahah.
I do have pics and vid, Ill post em up in a bit.

Yup, sorties a-d? headed south to stop 1 at the springs whereas we were sent north west to the casino for card 1 and pics, we got over 4 min of helo time on the way to the springs and that pilot was bad to the bone in his chopper flying sideways at 72 only 25 ft or so off our bow, the footage will be intense.

Ken yes it was a KPM strainer.It pulled the threads out of the lid so it could not be screwed back on.The boat had so much water the we were minutes from going down.
